No matter what it is that you buy, you always hope that the item in question is going to be fit for purpose. In some instances, it isn’t. While the thought of having to return an item that is faulty is a little frustrating, for other people the faulty product can actually cause injury. In that case they could be due to receive compensation for the injuries that they have sustained.
One of the main areas of faulty products that you could claim compensation for with the help of experienced compensation lawyers in North East Lincolnshire is in the consumables market.
If you have purchased something in a shop, restaurant or café that turns out to be faulty then you could make a claim. If the food has not been cooked properly, or has been allowed to become contaminated with other substances you may find that you develop food poisoning. You might even have an allergic reaction depending what other trace ingredients have been allowed to come in to contact with the food or drinks you have consumed.
Equally, you could be injured if other items have been allowed to find their way in to your food. For example, here at Accident Advice Helpline we have helped people who have broken teeth in the past as a result of biting on pieces of glass or china that have been found in sandwiches and packets of crisps.
Another common cause of claims resulting from faulty products involves electrical good. Problems in the manufacturing process can lead to issues with the heating elements in cookers, kettles and even hair straighteners. If you have been burnt or have received an electric shock as a result of a product then you could speak to our accident lawyer in North East Lincolnshire to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim.
